iKure is a population health management system that meets primary healthcare and prevention needs through a unique combination of health outreach initiatives, skills development, and technology intervention.

iKure’s mission is to provide community-based, holistic healthcare services for rural residents using technology innovation and a hub-and-spoke model. So far, the organization has reached 12 million people in eight states in India, treating over 2.5 million patients.

COVID-19 Response

Driven by frontline healthcare workers, iKure is providing home-based remote monitoring solutions for COVID-19 positive cases and effective screening mechanisms to reduce the population spread in regions with higher numbers of COVID-19 infections. iKure's COVID-19 response during the second wave has included community-based remote health monitoring of COVID-19 patients. It has also set up isolation centres.

Rural healthcare systems were not prepared to tackle the pandemic due to shortages in the available hospital beds, trained doctors and access to sustained supplies of oxygen. We're bringing innovative solutions driven by frontline health workers to provide home-based remote monitoring solutions for COVID-19-positive cases and effective screening mechanisms to reduce the spread in regions with high numbers of cases. We aim to work with every community that has been left behind.
